raised the debt ceiling, it would be $1 for spending cuts for every dollar in debt ceiling raised. that is not what you got this time. and you have put the focus on senate democrats, a political tactic, perhaps a very successful one. but is that really a tactical retreat? >> i don't think so at all, chuck. and i was curious to hear steny's comments about this being a gimmick. 86 democrats supported the bill that we had on the floor yesterday, the no budget, no pay, so clearly they didn't think it was a gimmick. this was a bipartisan effort. look, if you look at the goal, we've got to get our fiscal house in order, we've got to balance the budget, and in order to do that, the senate actually has to produce a budget, which they haven't done in nearly four years. the house has had budgets for each of the last two years that actually get to balance. so what we did, in this bill, is to say to the senate, look, you've got to do a budget. families do budgets, businesses do budgets, employers do budgets. the senate has not done a budget in nearly four years, so this is the challenge for t

senator obama voted against raising the debt ceiling, he said he was doing so because the national debt was at an outrageous $8 trillion. he clarified for a fact -- $8 trillion, trillion with a 't'. now our national debt is over $16 trillion and climbing, larger than our tire economy and he is not a word about it at all. he calls a progress. his campaign slogan said it is forward. i've got news for the president, if washington's debt is going forward, america's economy is going backward. instead of worrying about managing the economy, it is time to address how we can lead america out where she can once again become the land of opportunity and once again become a place of growth and opportunity. we should put all our eggs in that basket as conservatives and republicans. we certainly do need folks in washington, d.c. to devote themselves to stop as president from taking this country so far off the ledge that we can i get back. we must stop what is rapidly becoming the bankrupting of our federal government. we, as conservatives, must dedicate our energies endeavors to growing america, to g

to be -- to compromise to the slightest extent and all they did was kick the debt ceiling down the road three months. >> stephanie: yeah, and boehner called his own bluff he said never going to raise it without equal pay cut, and basically he went back on that, and as you said, all he did was kick it down the road for three months. what was the point for him? >> the point was to look like they had some kind of a win because they knew they were in trouble on the debt ceiling, and then put the pressure on somebody else, namely the senate. but they are going to put forth a budget pretty soon that is really going to be an important % contrast for the american people to see. they are going to try to balance the budget in ten years, which you cannot do without slashing medicare and medicaid, and social security. so the american people will get, i think, a very good look at the way republicans want to balance the budget and do deficit reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back awa
